New Fair Work Information Statement – July 2015

New Fair Work Information Statement – July 2015

Since January 2010, employers have been required to provide a Fair Work Information Statement to new employees as soon as possible after their employment commences.

From today the statement will reflect the updated high-income threshold noted above, so employers must ensure they provide the correct version, and are familiar with its contents.
The updated statement will be available on the Fair Work site, via the HR Central online platform or by contacting us here at HR Central.

Failing to provide a copy of the statement, or to comply with other National Employment Standards, exposes employers to penalties of up to $10,200 for an individual and $51,000 for a corporation.
